    Historical Traveler Reviews Silla Hotel Florence

    Feels like home


    We stayed at Silla for two consecutive years and wouldn't even consider another hotel when we return to Florence. The combination of cordial staff, great setting and discriminating guests made our stays truly wonderful. When I want to escape the stresses of everyday life, I reflect on our best vacations ever and cherish the beauty of Florence and the warmth of the staff at Silla where we were treated like family. Thank you all for heartwarming experiences.

    Lovely,clean,well located Florence Hotel


    I have been a Travel Consultant for many years,and on my last trip to Florence, I stayed at the Hotel Silla,(I got the recommendation from Karen Browns book). Was a perfect location, very clean & quiet, friendly staff, and certainly well priced. I have sent many of my clients there, & will continue to do so. Next time I go to Florence, I would not think of staying any place else. Keep up the good work Hotel Silla!

    We Enjoyed


    My wife and I enjoyed our 20th anniversary in Italy and spent 2 nights at the Hotel Silla. Great caffe latte at breakfast and rooms which were very clean. We found that, in Europe, just because a hotel advertises air conditioning, it doesn't mean it will be on or available. Thankfully, the weather was such that we didn't need it . We liked the staff and the location and found it a very good value.

    Great place, great service, great price


    The Hotel Silla was reasonably priced and a charming place to stay in an excellent location. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. After room service had closed for the evening, my husband asked a staff member where we could get a cup of tea nearby. Even though they had shut down the kitchen an hour earlier, the staff member made us a beautiful tray of tea and cookies.

    The hotel is located just steps from restaurants and public transportation. Our room was simply decorated, but very pretty and the bathroom was very large. We plan to return to Florence, and we'll stay at the Hotel Silla when we do.

    Beautiful location but overrated


    The hotel Silla is in the most beautiful location with a gorgeous view of the Arno and beautiful terrace. However inside is a very different matter, I was there in the summer 2002- the room was basic/dingy and needed to be thoroughly refurbished, the corridors were very pokey and sadly felt rather claustrophobic. It wasn't cheap, and was certainly very sad and rundown place. It has so much potential and let's hope the owners do something about it!

    Wouldn't go anywhere else in Florence.


    What a joy to find such a nice hotel, good service, friendly staff and so centrally positioned. We stayed for a couple of days with a group from Canada - couldn't have been better. Will always go back.

    A trip to Florence, Italy.


    My family and I stayed at Hotel Silla in Florence for 10 days. The staff of the hotel has been very friendly helping us find places, inquiring for tour buses and in general helped us in every way possible. This 3 star hotel, is located not far from the Ufizzi Gallery near the Arno river, a very quiet and pleasant location. The rooms, and bathroom are kept very clean daily. We highly recommand it.

    Loved Hotel Silla


    We Stayed at Hotel Silla 6 nights while attending our daughter's wedding at the Grand Hotel Villa Cora in florence. We were thrilled with our Room #31 and the location was quiet and close to all you could wish to see. The staff was very friendly and eager to assist. Our rate was $176 which was very reasonable compared to everything else we checked. We had a hair dryer, refrig and cable tv (CNN only) in our room. Be sure to bring a converter for any other electrical items you have. Breakfast is served, however, no other food service is available.

    We will be sure to stay at Hotel Silla again.

    Ideal location


    Lovely hotel set just back from the Arno, 5 minutes walk from the centre. The rooms are simply furnished but clean. Try to get a room at the front with views over the city.

    Very attentive staff. Great first floor patio is ideal way to relax.

    I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Florence.


    Hotel Silla is a great place to stay in Florence. It is located on the bank of the Arno River and it's only a 10 minute walk from the center of the old town. The rooms are very spacious and well-kept; many have 10 ft ceilings. Also, you can enjoy breakfast on the 2nd story terrace that has great views of the River Arno and the rest of Florence

He put his hand on our shoulders when he spoke to us, but it was in a grandpa way…not a creepo way. He made us an AWESOME offer on the painting Kyle loved…so we bought it and are having it shipped home. We want to go back years from now to buy ...

    ... my Event Planning class. I am also in love with this class because we get to plan a fashion show that will be happening in the beautiful streets of Florence!! This will give me a bit of a boost in my career and will be an amazing experience. Right when I walk through our apartment door I found Jana making dinner for all of us, which was delicious!

    Throughout the rest of the week I attended all my amazing classes ...

    ... we ate it on the concrete of a park area (all the seats were taken), what a fancy restaurant we ate at. David is big, very big. It would have taken a huge piece of marble and a lot of work to carve him. You could see every vein in his hand and arm, it was very detailed. There was also some unfinished statues that Michelangelo was making for the pope, until the pope said that he didn't want them or need them and so he didn't finish them. ...

    ... Cinque Terre in the morning with two train transfers in Pisa and La Spezia. This should be fun.

    Day 6: Wednesday

    McCafe for breakfast, don't judge it is very different here than in the US, in a good way. The cafe is connected to but not part of the restaurant. Fresh baked blueberry muffin an a coffee got my anticipation for the coast of Italy to skyrocket. Our first train was right on time so we boarded and found seats all together very successfully. Hoping the good luck ...
